Stirling Writers and the Calabi-Yau space problem

I read at Stirling Writers’ Group last night. It was a very warm, friendly evening, and I enjoyed the venue and the company. I won’t post a detailed set list – there were too many poems – but I read from the collections:
Thirteen Ways of Looking at the Highlands (diehard 1996)
Poetry cards – Painted Fruits, and Landings (CWP 1998)
Seven Senses (diehard 2000)
Mementoliths (CWP 2005)
Sushi & Chips (diehard 2006)

I also read new work, including some very recently published, some recently accepted, and some which will never be submitted!

I’ve been tagged by Andrew Shields:

But there was an equally great problem. Had there been only one Calabi-Yau space, with fixed constants, we would have had the unique unified theory we yearned for. Unfortunately, there turned out to be many Calabi-Yau spaces.

Lee Smolin: The trouble with physics.

How to play:

1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).

2. Open the book to page 123.

3. Find the fifth sentence.

4. Post the next three sentences.

5. Tag five people.

Well, I’m not sure who to tag, so if anyone in reader space wants to try it, consider yourself tagged.
